This petition is aimed at the main-stream media.
The aim is to bring the Bilderberg 2010 meeting under the media spotlight.
Bilderberg Group is a meeting of the most powerful and influential people in the world including leaders of countries, leaders in banking, finance, multi national corporations and even royalty.
The media has avoided coverage of these annual meetings for whatever reasons. The general public is unaware of these meetings because of the lack of media attention. This has enabled the group to keep its agenda secret for 55 years. Whether it is just a "private" forum for discussion or if intentions of the group run deeper, the actual meetings themselves NEED to be covered.
Publicity is pure poison to the world's global power elite. So we should all turn up to its next annual meeting with a few more tubs of the stuff, writes Charlie Skelton
Ten years ago, when Jon Ronson dared to report on Bilderberg, he found himself "chased by mysterious men in dark glasses through Portugal". He was scared for his safety.
"When I phoned the British embassy and asked them to explain to the powerful secret society that had set their goons on me that I was essentially a humorous journalist out of my depth, I wasn't being funny. I was being genuinely desperate," he wrote. I know exactly how he feels.
Only out of sheer desperation did I try to arrest one of the goons following me and then follow my flimsy leads up the Greek police ladder, finally catching one of the goons wet-handed in the lavatory of the department of government security. And only then did I know the extent of Bilderberg's paranoia: they had set the state police on me.
So who is the paranoid one? Me, hiding in stairwells, watching the pavement behind me in shop windows, staying in the open for safety? Or Bilderberg, with its two F-16s, circling helicopters, machine guns, navy commandos and policy of repeatedly detaining and harassing a handful of journalists? Who's the nutter? Me or Baron Mandelson? Me or Paul Volker, the head of Obama's economic advisory board? Me or the president of Coca-Cola?
